Baby yoga for busy yoga loving mommies

After becoming a mommy, many women are struggling for time yet mommies are still expected to be fashionable and healthy.

Yoga for women is an exercise that you can practise anywhere, anytime and great for busy moms.

You can even start doing baby yoga with your toddler, like how we can do stretching exercises at home with your little baby.

Baby photography ideas

A baby changes nearly each month and these are moments that are once-in-a-lifetime therefore parents should get baby monthly photo shoots if possible.

Rather than just self taken photos on your mobile phone, it would be great to invest to wonderful photo studio sessions in your local city.

Popular baby photo studios in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia include
1. The Picture Company with photo studio branches in KLCC, 1 Utama, MidValley Gardens and more
- buy 1 year membership that comes with free photo sessions but you will need to purchase the digital files and baby photo print outs separately
- Good bonus is the FREE birthday month photo studio shooting and 1 free photo for the birthday person (can nominate a few people to share this account, eg dad, mum, siblings, grandparents)
- Good points : good choices of background, baby costumes, and instant choosing of photos after the session
- Improvements needed : speed of photos delivery, and had to return to studio a couple of times as some big photo frames ordered was not up to quality, due to problems with suppliers (outsourced printing)

2. KiddieLab at Kota Damansara
- very popular photo studio that has many Groupon, group buy promotions so you should check on this before you approach them directly at higher rates

3. De One at Sri Hartamas
- quiet photo studio and many choices of baby costumes. The photographers are quite patient with the babies and have many cute head accessories to dress up your kids with matching background e.g. seaside background has seashells, pearl strands, while your baby girl can be dressed in mermaid's costume
- starts from about RM388

Apart from studio baby photo shoots, you should get OUTDOOR photo shooting by freelance photographers or company photographers, especially at swimming pools, and parks which brings out the best of your child's playful character
- set the appointment at a suitable time (not near the baby's naptime) and prepare several costumes and have parents or family members be in part of the photo shoots.
- bring along snacks and toys to entertain your kids

Happy Baby Photography!
